'85 girls start lookin' good.
I just listened to the FM before this. It is like 2 different shows. Nice remaster w/ this version. Minglewood, Peggy-O, Jack Straw and Drums are Ultramix or the '84 Equivalent (FM mix?) it sounds like to me. Other tracks sound more like a straight board. Weird recording noises & hiss in Women & some in space. All just part of the normal tape experience. The recording is nice and full w/ Healy's tricks coming through. I think Boards from this period are better than Aud. b/c you can actually hear all the subtleties that get lost in the audience fog.
The playing in this show is inspired w/ that dark spacey sound that made '84 '84. No way to go wrong with a 17 minute Shakedown to start, nice Scarlet> Fire & Spanish Jam in the middle, tossing in an orphaned UJB towards the end. Sounded like somebody might have been going for a China Doll out of UJB but it did not materialize. Pretty unusual & innovative for an 80s NYE show. Check it out and enjoy.
4* may be a little low, but...
